Thank you for your interest in the 2015 Melbourne University iGEM Team! Please read the following information about iGEM, the team, and what you need to do to get involved.

What is iGEM?

iGEM is a unique opportunity to get involved in an enterprising student research group and make a scientific impact.

iGEM is short for the International Genetically Engineering Machine competition. iGEM is an undergraduate science competition held each November in Boston. In the months leading up to iGEM, university teams use the latest tools from synthetic biology/biotechnology to create a novel single celled organism or “biological machine”.

iGEM is an international competition based on the new science of synthetic biology. Each year, students from around the globe form teams at their respective universities with the goal of building a biological system or tool, which they present at the iGEM global conference in Boston. Students in the past have designed bacteria that produce new types of drugs and biofuels, act as biosensors of toxic pollutants, and even perform simple computation (for examples of past projects, see http://igem.org/About).

iGEM teams manage everything from the conception to the execution of the iGEM project, with the aid of faculty supervisors.

The benefits to participating in iGEM include:
-Get valuable scientific and leadership experience
-Develop a useful, novel biotechnology and gain experience in the latest in interdisciplinary biological research

-Make an impact
-Have an incredible experience!

What is involved and what is needed

We are searching for enthusiastic students with an interest in science.

 

As part of the iGEM team, you would help with the following tasks:

·         Research on the iGEM project ideas. The ideas for the iGEM project are student driven, and team members often need to answer specific research question to design new experiments or come up with new ideas. This will typically involve doing quick searches of the literature using Google Scholar and reading scientific articles.

·         Help with developing experimental methods. The 2014 team has built up a library of protocols and experimental methods. However, the project for 2015 will likely require new methods. You will need to look up protocols in the literature and adapt them to the project requirements.

·         Wet lab work OR modelling/computation OR engineering design. By joining the iGEM team, you will have an opportunity to participate in the lab and learn many standard techniques in molecular biology from fellow lab members. Alternatively, many iGEM teams make use of the skills of engineers, computer scientists, and other non-biological science disciplines. This may take the form of, for example, modeling a biological system using software like Matlab, designing microfluidic devices with biological applications or designing an electrical device which interfaces with a biological system. If you have an interest in interdisciplinary research between your field and biology, it is likely iGEM will be able to accommodate it.

·         The scope of iGEM also extends into non-traditional science areas, including biotechnology entrepreneurship, biotechnology ethics and the law, and science outreach, and so we are actively seeking students with business, law, design, and arts backgrounds. You could, for example, create a business plan for a iGEM-created company, examine bioethics within synthetic biology, or even explore the potential of biologically-inspired art.

 

There are several traits needed on the iGEM team:

·         Research skills. IGEM is an exciting opportunity to undertake self-directed research in synthetic biology. We will therefore need students who are keenly interested and adept in research. To participate, you will need to have the capacity to quickly get up to speed in the field of biotechnology and to eventually excel in a lab with limited instruction.

·         We’re looking for team members from a range of backgrounds. iGEM is about cross-disciplinary research, so in addition to biological and biomedical science students, we welcome students from engineering (electrical, mechanical, chemical, software etc.), computer science, maths, physics, chemistry, and other physical sciences. Also, students from non-science backgrounds are very welcome to get in touch to explore how they can contribute to the team.

·         Participation would be most suited to students with a high level of academic maturity. Typically, this includes third year, honours, or Masters students, but students from all levels who can demonstrate an aptitude for research or leadership are welcome to apply.

A biological science background is helpful, but not required. Team members will need to use knowledge from second-level biology subjects. However, we have had team members without a biological science background who have excelled.

Recruitment

If you are interested in being a part of iGEM, please email Sean Lowe at MelbourneUniIGem@gmail.com and indicate the role(s) you are interested in.

Further information about iGEM and updates about the recruitment process will be made available at https://www.facebook.com/MelbourneUniIGem.


We are currently seeking expressions of interest from keen students who wish to get involved with iGEM. Over the summer, we are looking for students to form part of the founding team for 2015. As part of this team, you would work to set the framework and goals for next year. With the guidance and assistance of the current team, you would liaise with faculty and sponsors to set up support systems for the team. Most importantly, you will be need to be able to generate a vision for what a student-based science team can and should be, it’s potential and opportunities.

Recruitment is now open. Roles will filled in December and throughout the summer. If you wish to be involved over the summer, please get in touch with us as soon as possible and before 5 January 2015.
Any positions on the team which are not filled over the summer will be filled in weeks 1-2 of semester 1, 2015. Note that applications at the start of the semester can be very competitive, so if interested, please get in touch now.

If your skills and interests match up with the team, you will need to send a CV and answer a short questionnaire about iGEM (available by email).
